Italian artist Silvano Rubino, who does set and costume design for theatrical and dance performances, also creates contemporary art with glass. We really dig this one he did of a dining table with clear glass and steel called Addizione Sottrattiva (Subtraction Addition) — so named for the gaping holes it has where the plates and cutlery should be. It’s wonderfully witty.
